Hertz Realty Group advises and assists our institutional clients with their industrial acquisitions platforms. We do this by both sourcing institutional quality assets and assisting with financial analysis to our select group of clients based on their specific investment criteria. We strictly limit our client base to work more closely with them and develop a deeper understanding of their needs. Most importantly, we uncover acquisition opportunities by developing relationships with key decision makers and C-Suite executives of institutional quality assets.
Capital Markets Advisory
We provide independent and objective advice on critical capital market judgments our clients would have to make during the underwriting process. To facilitate transaction closings, we work hand-in-hand with our clients to provide a unique combination of industry expertise, C-Suite relationships and access to key decision makers.
Hertz Realty Group conducts commercial real estate brokerage, investment sales, and site selection services. With an emphasis on large industrial sites, land assemblages, and redevelopment opportunities, we add value by leveraging our existing relationships to facilitate transactions. Most of our transactions are executed with competitive pricing without the long and expensive process of taking a property on the open market.
